Brand new for Bestival 2012, Pig’s Big Ballroom is dedicated to the late great John Peel, who used to play a “Pig’s Big” 78 every night on Radio 1. The stage is programmed by Bestival’s ringleader of vintage tuneage Greg’s Greats and his uniquely analogue Shellac Collective, who compile this week's barnstormingly brill Besti-mix - primed to well and truly whet your appetites for original 10” 78rpm Shellac records and live bands and acts whose musical roots are deeper than the Cheddar Gorge!
